|Prophecy By Judge Rutherford - J.F. Rutherford|
"Prophecy," by Judge J.F. Rutherford (1929). Rutherford, the 2nd president of the Watchtower Society, later gave the group the name Jehovah's Witnesses in 1931. Page 65 of the book states: "The Scriptural proof is that the second presence of the Lord Jesus Christ began in 1874 A.D." (It wasn't until the early 1930s when Watchtower publications changed the date of Christ's "presence" to 1914.)
